Smart Electricity Meters: Introduction

  • A smart electricity meter is an electronic device that measures the accurate amount of electricity consumed by a residence, business, or electrically-powered device
  • A smart electricity meter provides highly accurate information about consumed energy, which reduces the chance of error in the existing billing system to minimal
  • Smart electricity meter includes first-generation smart meters or AMR (Automated Meter Reading) meters and second-generation meters or AMI (Advanced Metering Infrastructure) meters
  • Smart electricity meters use different technologies to deliver information wirelessly via low-energy radio frequency waves. Customers have access to the smart meter’s power usage data so that they can control energy usage, either by altering usage habits or pointing issues related to the power quality.
